Waste from all state hospital will be transported here for scientific disposal.

Meanwhile, 20 incinerators have been installed in different hospitals, which produce a greater amount of liquid waste. This project will include all district hospitals.

Prior to its installation, the garbage was disposed of utilizing the “deep burial” method. Some of the sub-divisional hospitals is also expected to come soon under the purview of this project.

Additionally, we are setting-up seven effluent treatment plants (ETPs) across different locations to manage hospital liquid residuals effectively. – he declared.
